    I'd like y'all to come celebrate Bridget's 18th Birthday. How does Cinco de Mayo sound to everyone? Its right behind the Hardees in Grafton on Rt 17.

    Same Bat Time? 1830 meet-up?

    That's the plan! She has school the next day, so we need to keep it close to home. We can travel to the southside for the next one, though. I know they have some great resteraunts down there!

    I'm 2.75 hours to the north of you. I wish I could meet some of the Tidewater members eventually. Maybe after I finish school.

    Mike, an 1830 meetup makes it more difficult for us on the Southside to get there in time, and any new folks don't know what the "Same Bat Time" is - that's why we traditionally post the dining outs for 1900 (7:00PM) - the extra half hour gives the tunnels a chance to clear out. Plus a date and address (for us directionally challenged folks - GPS is our friend) would also help....Thanks.

    The SOUTHSIDE Crew has spoken. I used to live in Norfolk, and I feel your pain in going through the tube. Let's make it 1900 (7pm for those normal folks) for the get-together. When we get closer to the date, I'll call and ask for the back room and tables for the group.

    "CINCO De Mayo" lat=37.159399458, lon=-76.4621427707

    I tried to copy & paste the Google Earth image here, but the forum proggie won't allow that... I'll make a regular link for a Mapquest and include the address for everyone. I am a Google Earth ADDICT!

    121 Grafton Station Ln
    Yorktown, VA 23692 757-872-0061

    Here's a link to the Mapquest page I used...

    http://www.mapquest.com/maps?name=Ci...amp;id=2931612

    Visually, it is right behind the HARDEES on Rt 17. it is the first storefront in a small stripmall. If you're coming from theSOUTH on Rt 17, take your next right turn after you see TACO BELL. There is aBANK on one corner and the above mentioned HARDEES on the other corner.

    Coming from the NORTH,When you passRITE AIDon the left side, be in theLEFT lane. You will take the first left after the signal at DARE ROAD. Of course you will see HARDEES first. There is not a light controlling the turn into Grafton Station.

    http://www.mapquest.com/maps?name=Ci...amp;id=2931612

    if you're ever in the area at lunchtime, they have a GREAT lunch buffet that is cheaper (and much better) than eating at Taco Bell (which is 200 yards away) on Rt 17.

    OOPS... I seem to have made quite a mess of that post. I thought I had already put the date up there in the INFO Box:

    14 MAY

    The problem with the info box is that it does not show here in the topics, and this topic will be used all month for all of the May dining outs (that's why we usually leave the info boxblank) BUT at least you posted and now we have another dining out scheduled!!! Thanks

    I will try to make this one. It depends on a few things so consider me "tentative".

    I will try to make this. Cinco is about 1.5 miles from my house, so it will be very convenient for me (and my wife/driver). Heck, I could probably scoot my wheelchair to the joint. Seriously, I have OC'd there a few times and have never had any problems, and the food is pretty good. I remember the back room, though I don't recall how big the table is.

    Okay, We're a little over a week out and I'd like to give them a heads up and make a reservation for us.

    Here's what I have so far:

    MSC 45ACP 2+ maybe the rest of the clan... (4 more)

    Renegade 1?

    ccloud 2?

    I am going to try my best to be there but there is a lot of road and traffic between there and the south side of Suffolk.

    We're down for 2....a suggestion - we've never had an accurate head count,we just call them and let them know we'll be with a large group of between 15 and 20 people, sometimes more,on thedate, at whatever time....sometimesour guess isclose and sometimesit's not - it really depends on what's happening on that specific day foreach of us - and the traffic.

    I'll do that tomorrow.

    I'll ask them to hold us a table for 15-20 folks on the 14th at 1900 (7pm for you normal folks...)

    Perhaps we can ask Big Brother the Moderator to put this near the top of the list as an Announcement, too.
